Smart Pup for Eli (202401)

Smart Pup for Eli (202401)

Autism, ADHD, anxiety, learning impairment and genetic disorder affect me daily.

We are raising funds to upgrade my weighted puppy, ‘Charlie’, to my new “best friend” to assist me to live life as best I can.

I love cricket, rugby, my iPad and my old “best friend” Rufus (the dog).
I don’t like specialist appointments, and not knowing how to feel, act or what to say, so I get frustrated and often want to go home where I feel safe.

Eli has ongoing daily struggles with high levels of anxiety, challenges with under and over focussing, lack of communication and social awareness/skills, sensory issues plus difficulties with sleep.

The world can be very overwhelming for Eli and a new “best friend” will assist Eli to navigate his scary world and build confidence.

Eli has a team of specialists plus unconditional love from family and support of friends, however, Eli’s assistance “best friend” will be able to further assist with his ‘big emotions’ and ease behaviour meltdowns by assisting Eli’s confidence, self esteem, social interactions, night terrors and sleep challenges.

These amazing dogs take around 12-18 months to be specially trained to assist our young people with their ‘particular’ daily life challenges.

We will continue our relationship with Smart Pups via events for years to follow. Please share our story and the fantastic Smart Pups work as they are a Not For Profit organisation relying on every donation from the public.
